Loose Women presenter Christine Lampard (nee Bleakley) has branded her stalker’s alleged tweets as ‘sinister and dark’, whilst appearing in court recently.
The 39-year-old had been recalling the events at the Newton hearing, which is currently being held at Isleworth Crown Court to decide whether or not Christof King, 39, of Brent, sent the tweets. King last week admitted one charge of stalking. However, he disputes sending Christine the tweets.
Giving evidence from behind a curtain, Mrs Lampard said the “disturbing” tweets caused her so much concern she showed them to her husband.
Although she said several tweets, some tagging her employer ITV and her husband, were “incoherent waffle” she added that, “Several tweets became quite sinister and dark.”
It’s reported that Christine, who is pregnant, also received letters. Allegedly, her ‘stalker’ also turned up at the house she shares with husband Frank Lampard on more than one occasion.
Christine, who has 439k followers on the social media channel Twitter, explained that she noticed his tweets because ‘there were so many of them’.
One tweet he is alleged to have sent said, ‘I can hear the scratch of nails as I sharpen them ahead of your crucifixion.’
The court heard another tweet, which said, ‘I am planning the words that will go on your gravestone.’
39-year-old Christine also shared that her biggest concern was that she worked predominantly on live TV, meaning it is not too difficult to work out her whereabouts.
Speaking about the letters allegedly sent by King, Mrs Lampard said, “I felt very uneasy with the letters. Incredibly odd, including one written to my dog. But, it was this sense that he felt a certain destiny to talk to me which is clearly not normal.”
The court was also told how the TV star was at home when her housekeeper answered the door to a man called Christof who had asked for them, but because she thought it was the Christof her husband Frank works with, they both approached the front door and Mrs Lampard recognised him as the ‘man from Twitter’.
The hearing continues.
